's it the spot that began the lockdown of boston first we know in the history of this city where people have sheltered in place all day. the drive in from the airport all day. as if there was a holiday for all religions and no one was moving on any street. the drive from the airport to downtown boston was less than 10 minutes and anybody who knows anything about this city knows that means boston was at home. now back to watertown where the police activity continues. let's listen in. fox 25 from boston. >> the identity, they told us to get out of the area. >> you heard multiple shots. >> multiple shots. at least 20 shots. it was all like it was all -- it was state police on one side. they started to move to see where it was coming from and then all hell broke loose. >> that's paul sutherland he actually heard the shots, telling us several shots. at least more than a dozen police cars. they are blocking off the area and ambulances going down the road. there is an armored vehicle just pulling up to the scene right now. we heard police talking about he is in a boat. he is in a boat. >> heather o

an extraordinary weekend. the lockdown was announced during the show, and we were sure that by the end of the show, that would have him, right? because they had that horrible crime scene thursday night when they thought they had robbed the 7-eleven. it turned out they didn't rob the 7-eleven but they were there at the time. and then they shot and killed senselessly it seems this officer. they hijack the car take off with this guy, go from atm to atm, big up $800, thrown him out of the car. he very cleverly -- i give him credit for doing it appropriately -- left his cell phone in the car so the police were able to track his car to watertown, one brother is killed, and the other brother goes on the lam. and that's when thigh lockdown the city. it went on and on all day and i was watching the news i'm sure many of you were -- i was watching brian williams on nbc when he was reporting that this guy was still on the loose, and then they broke into the news, which was a replay they had taped a half hour before and went live and said they have -- gunfire was just he

't have doors on our classroom. if there was a reason for us to go into lockdown, i wouldn't have a way to prevent an intruder coming into the classroom. oney to boost our security at the school i'm at now is adding door os our classrooms. >> we have pod doors and we have doors on them but if there was some way to lock them and -- in a crisis or a situation that needed to be, we would feel safer in our pods. >> my final point was not necessarily my own idea. rather, i was inspired. >> my senior year we were given a writing assignment and the goal was to write ourselveses a letter and talk about where we thought we would be 10 years from now. as a 17-year-old, soon to be 18-year-old senior, i thought for sure that 10 years from the time this tragedy took place, that we would have metal detectors. >> metal detectors in schools? as extreme as it sounds, it's not that bad of an idea. why is it safer to go to an airport? why is it safer to go to a courthouse? yet somewhere where children are required to go every single day is not safe. recently vice president joe biden made a statement that
, greater boston now in lockdown and everybody being told to stay inside. what do you know right now? >> well, it sounds extraordinary. and it is. but you think about what this suspect number two has allegedly done over the last several days. a bombing that kills three, maims others and injures 170 and shoots a police officer in cold blood. shoots another police officer and wounds him. shoots at police, throws grenades and then holds a standoff, if you will, a shootout. it doesn't get any more desperate than that. and i think right now with this suspect cornered, they fear he could do anything with guns and explosives. we're seeing things here on the streets of watertown that i last saw on my last trip to afghanistan. s.w.a.t teams, not troops, but the same look, the same kind of movements, gingerly going around corners. gingerly objects that may or may not be explosives. a flurry of activity here in the last ten minutes or so. we saw an explosive ordinance and vehicles and converging on areas just over my shoulder here. it's been covering the story has been trying to watch and inter
earlier this morning, i guess it was 8:00 this morning, the lockdown had just occurred, but people were still out and about, you said, on the street? >> yeah, the word was just seeping out at that time, andrew. and i think as the word got out throughout the day, i can tell you that the city of boston was deserted on the streets. when my producer, justin solman and i made our way over here to watertown, we came up the surface streets and they were wide open and clear. the only vehicles you had on the streets were the law enforcement officials doing their job. so you have a community that is very much cooperating with law enforcement in this lockdown. everybody understands the importance and the need to stay out of the way and let the officials do their job, as they go literally door to door to juror, to try to find this 19-year-old suspect. so, yes, this has been a day like no other. i can guarantee you, in the city metropolitan area around boston. >> and the thinking, bill, in terms of going door to door, the thinking is, perhaps someone is hiding them in their homes? it's quite fascina
the person unharmed later. >> police followed that car to watertown as is in lockdown right now. the suspects at that point threw explosive devices from their car. at some point during the standoff, they had at least one pressure cooker bomb similar to the ones used in the marathon bombing. one suspect killed in the shoot-out. the one in the black hat. he reportedly then was run over and when police approached his body, they discovered an ied strapped to his chest. witnesses reporting hearing explosions, massive gun battle between the suspects and police. here is what adam kitzenberg told us not long ago. >> i went to the window and right outside of our apartment, there were two shooters in between a sedan and a black mercedes-benz suv. and they were in between these two cars taking cover behind the black suv, shooting down our street which is laurel street and they were shooting westward towards what looked to be about six -- six to ten watertown police department vehicles. they were shooting about what seemed to be 70 to 80 yards down the street utilizing handguns. and while they were engag
the lockdown and some people finally got out and about, started walking and one very astute person from this neighborhood parentally saw some blood on the boat, saw movement and immediately called police. >> it was an incredible moment, saying that the lockdown, the stay indoors was being lifted. suddenly the whole police action started up again, focusing on the one house with the -- they brought in helicopters with heat-seeking capability. take a look at these fbi websites. don't take them long to update their poster. both of them had been want, both suspects and dzhokhar, the word under the picture has changed to captured. >> reporter: in the waning moments the press conference which was announcing that, you know, we heard bursts of automatic gunfire from what sounded like, i would say, four weapons. they all sound all like the same well in terms of their make and model. i'm sewelling that is not a one-way shot being fired from police to the direction of the suspect. i didn't hear anything like that. and then silence. we saw a -- it was unmistakable bursts of gunfire that began this.
